Junior Regatta. Below is what we did in 2018 very successfully thanks to lots of help and enthusiasm! 2019 plans will be posted as soon as finalized.
JUNIOR REGATTA 2018
It is intended to hold this year’s Junior Regatta on 6, 7, 8th August. The main aims are to encourage children to enjoy the water, to develop a sense of competition, to work in teams, and above all to have fun! Activities will include swimming, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, rowing, rigging boats and rope work.
Once again, we have decided to hold the Regatta over three days and only to include children of ages up to and including twelve years. Older children will have the opportunity to help and be mentors to the younger children. All children have the opportunity to take part in Club Sailing days.
The number of children participating in the Junior Regatta will be limited to 30.
As last year, it is intended to split the children into Groups reflecting their abilities.
A lunchtime BBQ & presentation of certificates will be held on the 9th August.
Entry fees will be set at £20 for all children. Use of Club equipment will be free during the Regatta. The entry fee will include light refreshments (ie drinks & biscuits, including hot chocolate). Padstow Sailing Club T-shirts & hoodies will be available for a small extra charge but MUST be ordered at least one month before the start date
Wetsuits & Buoyancy Aids
All children will be required to wear wetsuits and bring their own buoyancy aids. The Club has a number of buoyancy aids which parents will be able to purchase from the Club for a small charge. You must provide wetsuits, wetsuit shoes or boots, (no crocs or sandals please), sunhats & sun cream.
Application to Take Part
If you would like your child/children to take part, please let either George Hamilton or Marie Roddis know before the end of June so that teams & groups can be compiled. As indicated above, it is intended to set the ceiling at 30 and, if oversubscribed, we will allocate on a first come first served basis so don’t delay in applying!
Please note that all entrants must be full members (ie not holiday members) of Padstow Sailing Club.
George can be contacted on 01841540824, or 07973770146 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marie can be contacted on 01841520652. Both can be contacted on the Club Address
An Application Form will be available below. Please return with the fee (payable to Padstow Sailing Club CIO) before the end of June.
A lot of hard work goes this event. A parent or guardian of each child must be present but we will require help in all aspects so please indicate on the Application Form how you will be prepared to assist (and on which days) in making the Regatta a resounding success. Some helpers should be prepared to get wet! We hope that your family will be able to join us for this important event and I look forward to seeing you
